    Show Me the Commercial!! Trucks, Vans and Utilities Thread!!

    Hey gang,

    Something I haven't noticed yet is a thread for the JNT - Japanese nostalgic truck or tilly!

    I definitely have a soft spot for the mostly forgotten workhorses of the JNC world. Certainly here down under, the ute has been baptized as a part of life! Japanese commercials have been over here since the late 1950's.

    Love to see everyone post up their own and other pictures of JNC trucks, vans and commercials.

    Here a few of mine to start it off!!
    My 1964 Mazda B1500 Tilly

    My 1966 PK31 Toyoace 25

    My 1976 Mazda B1600

    Good friends Mazda Bongo 1000

    Good Friends Toyota Crown Ute

    I like the old commercial vehicles, too. Here's an old Datsun that's still on the job. The owner has his business sign on the area behind the cab.



    Here's another full of gardening equipment and still working, also..



    BTW, I would LOVE to have one of those Toyoace trucks. Very nice!

    Duncan, love those shots of the old ute's still in use! Good to see they still live on in age in your neck of the woods.

    my hiace, although converted to a camper when new is very commercial spec. Especially when compared to the ultra plush JDM Hiace commuters/super customs/living saloons :lol:

    I really love those datsun 521? pickups but my fave has got to be the 620, one day I will have one of those.

    cheers! Rust is a really killer on these, almost all of the ones that have survived are campers in the UK. Most of the commercial spec ones will have been driven into that ground and/or exported to Africa. Mines had alot of welding over the years and will need more cosmetics or the coming year.

    I went on holiday to Malta last year and saw quite a few in good condition still in use.




    and a few more commercials from Malta/Gozo

    Wow, they all look to be in great condition for their age, don't seem to have the Aussie "drive it till it dies, then its got five years left" use!!

    Like the Brown Hiace there with the mags, look very similar to our CSA Tritons/Speedy Aungers or jelly bean mags as they're more commonly called here.

    Mate, just what I like to see, someone going on holidays and snapping photo's of old JNC commercials!! Can't talk really, do it myself!
